|Improvisation for Beginners and Advanced Players |
10 Compositions on Standard Patterns
This book includes ten original compositions based on simple harmonic patterns, similar to those used in the great jazz standards. Each of these ten pieces is presented with the following elements: 1) the theme--melody + chord symbols, 2) a written solo that can be studied as is, or simply serve as a melodic reference for the improviser, 3) the technical note--stylistic and harmonic context, melodic tools for the solo. The CD includes both listening and play-along tracks.
